Two Riders

A project by Michal Rinott, Shachar Geiger and Giori Politi.
Two people sit face-to-face on a pair of bicycles that have a shared front wheel. Their pedaling determines – together – the music generated and played from loudspeakers. The riders’ goal is not to race – but to move in synchrony. The better they synchronize their cycling, the richer the music becomes. When they move out of sync, the instruments become slightly out of tune and gradually disappear.
